In collaboration with the campus and surrounding communities, the Latin American Studies Program supports concerts, theme dinners, film screenings, symposia, service-learning projects, debates and teach-ins organized by various student organizations, faculty, campus divisions, and neighborhood associations. Every semester speakers who are experts in a field related to the courses being offered or who are directly involved with social, political, academic or cultural activities in Latin America are invited to campus. Our students are offered numerous opportunities to engage with Latino or Latin American communities in many other ways as well.
